City Star Brewing to Release Buccaneer Rum Barrel-Aged American Strong Ale

Berthoud, Colo. — Ahoy: Buccaneer has crashed ashore in land locked Berthoud, Colorado. Buccaneer is the next release in City Star Brewing’s Zoller Barrel Aged Series and will be available at the City Star taproom in Berthoud, Colorado on Saturday, December 9th at noon.

The 2017 vintage of Buccaneer is an American Strong Ale brewed with wildflower honey and aged 20 months in rum oak barrels. The alcohol by volume for Buccaneer finished at 12.7% with a flavor profile that is malt forward with notes of caramel, toffee, raisin, vanilla, and of course honey. This strong ale goes down pleasantly smooth in contrast to its abrasive name and will steal away your worries and make your stress walk the plank at the end of a hard day. (Is that too many pirate references?)

Bottles will be available for sale at $18/22oz bottle and Buccaneer will be on draft for sampling. City Star will also have a limited supply of 2015 Buccaneer bottles available for a side by side vertical tasting during the December 9th release.

City Star Brewing offers award-winning, small batch ales, hand crafted on a 3.5 barrel brew system in the heart of downtown Berthoud, Colorado. The small town brewery was awarded Gold and Bronze medals at the famous, Great American Beer Festival in 2015 and 2013.  City Star first opened its doors in 2012 and has since become a destination for craft beer lovers near and far.
